Have you ever wondered why your children act and behave the way they do? Have you marveled at the stages of development you have witnessed and simultaneously felt bewildered by that very journey of growth and maturation?
This presentation by Associate Professor Michael Nagel, Head of Education Programs at USC, unlocks some of the mysteries of the development of the mind from birth through adolescence and sheds light on why children and teenagers may act the way they do. Specifically, a look at neurological development gives parents an avenue for understanding the importance of just saying no to a toddler and reasons why adolescents seem to have difficulty explaining their actions when doing the wrong thing or indeed why they are, at times, seemingly incapable of responsible decision making.
The evening's presentation will look at those ideas with a focus on contemporary research into how your child's brain develops, how boys and girls brains may differ and the implications this has for parents as we watch our children become adults.
This presentation is suitable for parents of children from birth to late adolescence and for those considering becoming a parent.
Blame their brain:
